Our history


The grounds on which the Buccaneer is situated has a rich and impressive history, going back more than 600 years. The history can be divided in two periods.
Around 1415 the order of St Clara founded a monastery on the property including a chapel, sleeping rooms and workshops. The nuns lived here in isolation, filled their days with handicraft and were allowed to beg in the city on specific times.
This period ended in 1572 during the Reformation.
In 1578 the military period started. Parts of the complex were used for storage of weapons, sulphur and saltpetre. After a huge explosion in 1654 which destroyed all buildings (and a large part of the city centre of Delft), the area was re-arranged. In 1671 the first stone was laid for the new artillery warehouse. This was the beginning of the complex as we know now.

In 2013 the Government sold the complex to Joop Roodenburg who founded the Buccaneer on these premises. After hundreds of years being closed to the public, the complex is now an open area. Joop Roodenburg (1950), having designed and built many innovative systems mainly for the offshore sector, envisions to pass on his drive and passion for innovation and entrepreneurship to the new generation.
